Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Parfait for Two! This is an easy, fast, and delicious dessert recipe that looks at good as it tastes.
HEALTHIER VEGAN CHOCOLATE PUDDING
If you’re looking for a fast, easy, somewhat healthy—as far as sweets go—dessert, then this is it. Thick and creamy vegan chocolate pudding with pureed raspberries, and a thick layer and a dollop of vegan whipped cream. Dreamy.
The pudding reminds me of the kind my mom used to make from the box, it’s that thick and silky. However, this is better, because it’s a five ingredient vegan pudding that doesn’t contain refined sugar, or things you can’t pronounce, unlike the boxed stuff.
It’s made from the following ingredients:
firm sprouted tofu
pure maple syrup,
pure vanilla extract
unsweetened almond milk
You don’t have to cook it, and you don’t have to wait for it to set. This is EASY.
I tinkered with the chocolate and the maple syrup for a while when I created this pudding recipe, because I wanted a dark chocolate flavor. That meant that it couldn’t be too sweet.
I think I nailed it. It has a slight, very slight, bitterness about it, and that’s what I was looking for.
The pure raspberry puree gives a sweet-tart flavor that brightens the darkness of the chocolate. I didn’t add any sweetener to the raspberries because I wanted their delicious flavor to shine all on their own.
The vegan whipped cream is the only thing that’s not homemade. I cheated on this part because I really wanted this vegan pudding parfait recipe to be fast and easy, so I bought a tub of So Delicious Coco Whip.

This dairy-free chocolate pudding parfait for two recipe was inspired by love and chocolate.
It would be a perfect romantic dessert for Valentine’s Day or any special occasion. I love my husband so much that I wanted to make him something special for dessert. And we both love chocolate, so this is a 2 for 1 when it comes to love.
Speaking of love, you’re going to love this parfait. It’s easy, it’s quick, it’s pretty, it’s pretty healthy, and it’s scrumpdillyicious! Every bite melts in your mouth.
The velvety pudding and the tangy raspberries, along with the fluffy coconut cream is a beautiful symphony of sweet satisfaction. Picture your special someone’s face when you serve them this gorgeous dessert.
Since it's almost Valentine's Day, my plan is to serve a romantic dinner in front of the fireplace.
A glass of champagne will most likely find its way into our hands as well, because, it is a day of celebration.
If you’re not going to stay in to eat on Tuesday, then make these for breakfast. They’re full of protein, fruit, and natural sugars—if you make your own coco whip. They’d be a great little morning gift for your kids. Imagine how much they’d love a dessert breakfast.
